For the past several years, I have taken a conscious break from traveling for work. In mid-January, I sucked it up and flew to NYC for two days and two nights of style inspiration, all provided by Lafayette 148.
Travel is amazing. I travel a LOT. My husband likes to always be on the go and gets bored quickly being in any place for too long. I, of course, go with him. Truthfully, being a total homebody, I prefer to stay put, so when the pandemic barrelled in, I had a great excuse to say no to travel for work.
Well, I’m back with the band. It was great to be with like-minded women and to see all that is new. The break was okay, and I felt safe, yet feeling safe can be a roadblock to growth. I decided it was time to giddy up.
I booked the flight, packed my stuff in a carry-on, and went off. It’s funny; I didn’t have my meeting legs on and struggled to sit still for a full day. Stretching those muscles, too, was good for growth.
Anyway, I think my message is if you are struggling with the next steps in where you are, take a breath, and do the damn thing. It’s hard to keep putting things off; it takes so much energy not to do something. I’m glad I went; the next time will be easier.
Fun to be with you in NYC! I’ve miss business travel too!
You are amazing
